iPhone 11 Pro Max

Price in Pakistan, India, and Bangladesh

The new iPhone 11 Pro Max is almost a replica of XS and X Max with some major surprises. This smartphone has shaken the markets of the world with its mighty price tag of Rs. 234,500 in Pakistan, price label of Rs. 111,249 in India, and BDT 129,999 price in Bangladesh.

It presents the same design and screen as the iPhone X and X Max. Moreover, it comes with some big improvements in the performance, camera, battery, and a different Apple U1 chip. The brand new smartphone comes with a triple-camera on the back. The back glass has now a frosted finish in it.

Colors and variants

iPhone 11 Pro Max is an upgraded phone which is going to compel you to purchase an iPhone case, particularly if you have it in Midnight Green color, which is the hottest color of the year.

Apple’s plastic clear phone case is a good solution for this. It comes in other colors as well including Space Grey, Silver, and Gold. They all look exquisite compared to previous iPhones thanks to the matte appearance.

It comes in three storage variants: 64GB, 256GB, and 512 GB models.

Design and Feel

I got my iPhone 11 Pro Max in a modern box with a USB cable along with a pair of headphones. It comes with a 6.5-inch OLED display, and at the top, there is a huge notch. The phone’s screen is shielded with a tough glass which is made by corning. Apple has protected the screen with Gorilla Glass.

Although this phone retains a similar shape and feels as XS and X, It weighs 20g more than them. The overall weight of this phone is 226 g.

Apple has introduced it nearly similar to the iPhone XS only with an improved design. I am glad that Apple has retained its stainless-steel frame for this design.

The back panel has been upgraded to glass made by corning which Apple has described as matte textured glass. It comes with the frosted finish at the back. Its matte back panel makes this phone easy to grip without the fear of falling out from the hands as was the case with previous slippery iPhones.

Hardware

You will find the same buttons around the frame of the iPhone 11 Pro Max as with the previous X and X max. On the left side, is a silent switch along with volume keys while on the right side a power or Siri key is present.

Around that key, a SIM tray is also there. You will not find a USB-C port as Apple has decided to stick to the Lightning port.

A major change this time is the introduction of a new triple camera right at the top inside a special square.

Another improvement that I admired in this phone is that It can survive in deep water up to 4 meters for 30 minutes.

This smarphone retains the OLED display of 5.8 inches. The screen was quite brighter to look at.

It comes with an 18W fast charger. You will get two stereo speakers. One of the speakers is at the bottom of the phone while the earpiece acts as the second speaker. The results from the speakers are pretty balanced.

Software

The iPhone 11 Pro Max is supplied by the latest Apple iOS. This is the iOS 13, out of the box, and it can be upgraded to 13.1. With the new iOS 13, you will get a system-wide dark mode. You will also see upgraded battery health, better charging, and a few default apps with new outlooks including Photos, Reminders.

The new iOS supports a new Sign-in with Apple ID and a biometric Face ID feature in it.

Chipset

The iPhone 11 Pro Max is operated on the new Apple A13 Bionic chip which is built on a 7nm processor. This new chipset has proved to be faster and more powerful than A12 in the previous iPhones.

It comes with an A13 Bionic chipset that has a Hexa-core processor. Furthermore, it has a 4-core GPU and a 3rd generation 8-cores Neural Engine along with 4 GB of RAM.

A13 chipset is a considerable upgrade over the previous A12. In addition to graphene layers for improved cooling and faster performance in long run.

I played some heavy games on it. I was able to play them for a long time without the phone getting heat-up.

Camera

The iPhone 11 pro Max comes with a Triple 12 MP camera at its backside while the same Selfie camera on the front side. It has all-new 12 MP triple camera sensors.

Camera Quality

The main camera is called an optical image stabilizer with 1.4 µm pixels. The second camera is also a 12MP with 1.0µm pixels for optical zoom over the main camera.

The introduction of a new 12MP sensor with 1.0 µm pixels for an ultra-wide-angle lens is a brand new feature of the iPhone 11 pro Max.

The iPhone 11 Pro Max has a 12 MP Selfie camera which somehow captures accurate colors, though a little washed out which reminded me of iPhone 7 anemic colors.

This also presents a Portrait mode which uses the telephoto camera for the photos.

Final Verdict

Frankly speaking, the iPhone 11 Pro Max has proved too great and pulled off various new designs, but it still has not changed a great deal from the previous iPhone X and XMAX.

Although the price of the iPhone 11 Pro Max is much high, it has been a hassle-free experience for me, with a great variety of apps, fast performance, and excellent camera skills. I am doubtless to say that the iPhone 11 Pro Max is going to last you five years, and the major features are worth each penny.

Pros:

  • Powerful water-resistant design
  • Matte back panel
  • Great battery life with good charging
  • iOS gives a smooth experience

Cons:

  • Pricier. Very pricier
  • The camera lacks autofocus and Night Mode
